Below is the uncorrected machine-read text of this chapter, intended to provide our own search engines and external engines with highly rich, chapter-representative searchable text of each book. Barentsen used a field cone to measure tip resistances with depth in a 4-m Initial cone systems were of the mechanical-type design with two sets of rods. An outer set of steel rods was employed to minimize soil friction and protect an inner stack of rods that transferred tip forces uphole to a pressure gauge read-out at the ground surface.

Wherever your interest is surfacing from, we have everything you need to know about expanding into the CPT business with confidence. The cone penetration or cone penetrometer test CPT is used to determine the geotechnical engineering properties of soils and delineating soil stratigraphy. The difference between this type of data collection and other competitors is the benefit CPT has for businesses. CPT can provide immediate, onsite information that is quick and accurate. Above all, onsite results can improve your business productivity; ultimately leading to a more efficient business process. If you had the chance to take a look at our The Business of CPT , then you may have already taken a deep dive into the advantages of collecting subsurface information with a process that is more quick and efficient than other options. Businesses are choosing to use a CPT solution for many different reasons; whether for construction or government purposes, they all benefit from the same advantage: speedy collection and interpretation of data, a safe solution for operators and the environment, and the ability to adapt to different weather and soil conditions.
A cone penetration test is used to determine geotechnical properties of soils. The cone penetration test has become internationally one of the most widely used and accepted test methods for determining geotechnical soil properties. As the cone is pushed into the seabed, the marine soil responds with differing degrees of resistance. This resistance is recorded using strain sensors in the tip of the cone.
